Good news! There's Streets of Rage 4 DLC on the way. Bad news! There's no ETA on when we'll get it just yet.
Posing a hypothetical question on its own Twitter feed, developer Dotemu responded to a question about additional content by confirming DLC is on the way.
"YES, we will [add new content] but there is no ETA," the developer said. "You guys are awesome and deserve the best so give us time to do things right."

"For too long I used to think the beat 'em-up genre died a death all those years ago for good reason, and that this was a brand of game best left alone in the 90s," Martin said in the Eurogamer Streets of Rage 4 review.
"With its improvements, embellishments and above all reverence for the originals, Streets of Rage 4 makes me realise the error of my ways as it reframes the beat 'em-up as the forefather of the action genre that lives on today in the likes of Bayonetta and Devil May Cry - games born from the same mentality, and with that same swagger. Streets of Rage 4 has all that and then some. This is more than a mere revival of a once-loved series. Streets of Rage 4 is quite simply the best of the bunch."
